TES, beacon of hope for deserving SUCS and LUCS students in the Region

December 14, 2020 – Hon. J. Prospero De Vera III, CHED Chairperson led the orientation and distribution of the Tertiary Education Subsidy (TES) which took place at the Regional Office of National Economic Development Authority in Iloilo City. Different SUC Presidents, CHED personnel and student beneficiaries were present during the said event.

Despite the challenges and threat of the current pandemic, it did not stop Hon. De Vera III to be physically present and be that beacon of hope to the lives of the students who dream of having a bright future. “Supposedly this occasion will be done through zoom only but being here physically makes a difference!” Hon. De Vera said during his speech.

This year, thousands of deserving students received an amount of P40,000 for the entire school year 2019-2020. The subsidy will be of help for their school fees, school requirements and other projects especially in this time.

“The student beneficiaries were carefully chosen and evaluated based on their family’s income and those who are poorest of the poor but deserving students. They will be qualified after a series of background checking and confirmation” said Mrs. Adeliada Tabud, the University Scholarship Coordinator.

In an interview with ISAT U president, Dr. Raul F. Muyong, he stated that the subsidy will be of big help for the students in improving their way of life particularly in the context of flexible learning modalities.

“On top of availing free higher education, the TES beneficiaries will be able to buy their own gadgets and cell phone load for connectivity purposes which will be used for the new normal way of learning.” Dr. Muyong said.

“There’s no reason for the students not to finish their education due to poverty because of this opportunity given to them…” the president added.





January 5, 2021 – The Iloilo Science and Technology University’s project entitled: Development of Iloilo Province Employment Portal and

Services (IPEPS) with Data Analysis under the Good Governance through Data Science and Decision Support System (GODDESS) in Cooperation with Iloilo Provincial Government Public Employment Service (IPG-PESO) has been successfully submitted and approved. A virtual Forum and Contract Signing Ceremony took place on the said date with invitees coming from different parts of the country such as FSUU, PhilRice and ISU. Dr. Enrico C. Parinngit, the PCIEERD Executive Director graced the virtual ceremonial contract signing.

Dr, Raul F. Muyong, the ISAT U president signed the contract with the presence of the team’s project leader, Dr. Yvette Gonzales along with her members from Smarter Philippines through Data Analytics R&D, Training and Adoption Scholars (SPARTA) with the aim to address the gap in in-demand jobs and available skills and give services to labor and employment.

“To improve the existing system and make it more dynamic; job seekers, employer, academe, students and training provider centered, the development of Iloilo Province Employment Portal and Services (IPEPS) with Data Analytics will be developed. It is a web-based application that has six (6) components, the Job Seekers Registry, Employers Registry module, Employment registry module, Training registry module, Academe registry module and Students registry module.  Data analytics will be incorporated to forecast real-time data and relevant features will be included” Dr. Gonzales stated in an interview.

The project will run from January – December 2021 and it is funded by the Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD) under the Good Governance through Data Science and Decision Support System (GODDESS) Program.
